Ghanaian drill artist Yaw Tog wants to impact the lives of young learners in Ghana by buying books for them from the proceeds of his music.
Speaking during an interview with Kastle Entertainment Show, the ‘Sore’ hitmaker says his focus now is his non-governmental organization "TOGLife". So far, he’s managed to distribute over 6,000 books to elementary schools across Ghana.
“TOGLife Foundation we help people, especially the kids like the young ones like me and I have been able to share 6,000 books with them,” he opened up to Amansan Krakye.
The young artist declared that he will fund the distribution of an additional 20,000 books with the proceeds from his most recent performance at the Kumasi Rotary Park. His goal is to attain the distribution of 20,000 volumes. He shared the books with children in both public and private schools, and his focus is to get more money to purchase 20,000 more books for distribution.
Together with his team, they are working on raising more funds and all is going well, especially with his October shows. Yaw Tog is also keen on helping street families and other people who are in dire need but are underprivileged.
“I will use the money to go and support activities of my foundation for the people on the streets and everywhere,” he stated.
